Wanting to take my wife First/Business class to HKG in early Spring 2016. We each have 55K+ AAdvantage miles and a LOT of SkyMiles (We could also transfer some Ultimate Rewards to another carrier), plus we could get cards we do not currently have.
Very willing to do one way with one carrier and return with another (now that we can use our US Airways Miles w/ one-ways and Delta is also doing them.) She is also intrigued with Emirates, Etihad & Qatar (now that they are expanding routes from SEA.)
It is best for my wife to have a flat-bed seat, given the long TransPac flights.
Any good suggestions staying within these mileage amounts? Of course, if you suggest, we can acquire more miles/points as the summer goes forward, but hopeful we can lock something down soon as the booking windows open…
@ John DELTA — I think you’re actually pretty well positioned. You can do Cathay Pacific in one direction, and then there are some great options using SkyMiles in the other direction, like Korean Air, Delta, or China Eastern. Otherwise maybe consider accruing KrisFlyer miles so that you can book Singapore Airlines first class in the other direction.
